WALKER, Mich. (AP) - Improvements are planned this summer for two popular recreational trails in western Michigan.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (https://bit.ly/RmTx2b ) that work is slated for completion by fall on a stretch of the Fred Meijer Pioneer Trail in Walker, near Grand Rapids. A section that includes a 5-foot-wide sidewalk will be widened during a $100,000 project.

Walker has contributed $50,000 toward the cost of that project, with the remainder coming from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Meanwhile, a section of the Paul Henry Thornapple Trail will be paved. The $100,000 project includes creating a bike lane on a bridge. Gaines Township is contributing $75,000 toward the cost with another $10,000 coming from the Kent County Parks Foundation.

Both projects are in Kent County.
